    70 Years Ago Today - The Price of Freedom

    An excellent video, 14 minutes in length, depicting the "Price of Freedom, seventy years ago, to prevent the German occupation of France. As seen through the eyes of a 94 year old Veteran. Very moving!

    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    That war, and events leading up to it, and what it took to bring it to a close, should have been a stark reminder to people all over the world, just how precious freedom and life is, and how valuable firearms are. Especially when we had ads running on the radio and newspapers and magazines begging for Americans to send over any spare weapons they had, to the Brits.
    Sadly history usually repeats itself, because later generations "know better"
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!

    And a lot of folks today don't even realize it.

    My Dad was a WWII vet who passed in 2002. Yesterday my wife, step-son, sister-in-law, nephew, and I drove down to the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA. We arrived to late for the main events but were able to get in after lunch. The memorial was breathtaking to say the least. When there you feel that you are on sacred ground. There were bronze plaques everywhere as well as statues of soldiers making the beach landing and climbing the rock cliffs. There were also WWII re-enactors there with their gear. There were even several WWII vets who attended. The entire experience was very moving. To all who have served thank you just doesn't cover it. To all our WWII vets we owe more than we can repay. If anyone has the time and are in the Danville/Bedford area a stop at the memorial will be well worth it.

    Reuters photographer Chris Helgren compiled archive pictures taken during the invasion and went back to the same places to photograph them as they appear today.
